hearing a lot about fema and mitt romney's position on fema. yesterday he dodged a lot of questions about it in ohio. >> reporter: yeah, and the obama campaign and other democrats are pointing to comments romney made way back in june of 2011 at a cnn republican presidential debate. take a listen. >> fema is about to run out of money and there are some people who say do it on a case-by-case basis and some people say the state should take on a bigger role. how do you deal with that? >> every time you take something from the federal government you need to send it back to the states. that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> reporter: john king at that debate back in 2011. yesterday mitt romney at a campaign event converted to a disaster relief event in ohio and was asked by reporters a number of times about what he would do with fema. take a listen to what he said. >> reporter: governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> reporter: what would you do with fema? >> you can see he didn't say much to those questi

a question about fema. as you know one of the issues in this political climate has been big government versus small government. fema obviously part of big government. because fema writes checks for people who have been hit by devastating storms. would it be possible for the state to cover your governor would it be possible for your state to cover the damages in the state of delaware as you know, governor romney, has mentioned that he thought the states could pick up those costs, and he could remove some of the costs of fema from the -- from the government, federal government to the states? >> you know, i think that's ridiculous. i mean, because the fema has resources that they can centralize, and make available to states, that states couldn't replicate. whether it's having generators staged in a nearby state. so we don't have to have our own but we can tap into that if we need. so we've been really, really impressed by the response of fema and by their, essentially what happens is they embed with our own emergency management agencies, so it's as seamless as it can possibly be and it's terrifi

are crying out for help. today, homeland secretary janet napolitano will visit staten island with fema. >>> new york city's subway system is still down. other tunnels are without power because they are located in parts of the city in the darks. >>> a new problem flaring up, they are running out of gas. cars and gas powered generators. a lot of people are using those. frustration turning into anger and rage on long lines across the tri-state area. the shortages may not end for another week. >>> people waiting for hours, some waiting for so long, the gas stations actually close without them getting a single drop of fuel. rob is following all of this. rob, i was driving in at 2:30 a.m. and there was a line for gas that looks like it was three hours long at 2:30 a.m. this is bad. >> reporter: yeah, it's crazy. that may be the average. anywhere from a half mile long to, in some cases in new jersey a full mile long to get gasoline. the problem is two-fold. you have gas stations out of power and unable to pump. you have some with power but they don't have gasoline. why? many shut down before

of new jersey, says that a hundred generators from fema are coming. they've got a whole bunch of diesel oil that's going to be coming. we're talking about filling up our cars, these governments are talking about keeping sewage treatment plants open and getting generators to a lot of places. we think we've got it bad, we're trying to make sure that just the infrastructure of these big states is being, you know, is being taken care of. and it's a really, really big deal. >> you've been tracking insurance deductibles, the issue of people getting money after this storm. what's the latest there? >> the latest here is that the state regulators are saying, your hurricane deductible will not be triggered. when your hurricane deductible is triggered, it means you don't pay the $500 deductible you think you have on your home, you pay more like a percentage. that's $15,000, not the $300 you thought. andrew cuomo saying, no, those hurricane triggers will not go into effect, you will just pay your deductible, so that will save, if this really does happen, that will save homeowners in new york, new j
